Zeynabu and Samira

blog Zeynabu SamiraThis little one made it through a series of daily shots for malaria a couple of weeks ago, and now I think the family is just plain hungry.   This mama, who looks 15, is really 20 and the little one who is looking at me has a big sister, maybe 4 years old.  The dad of the family looks after CEFA’s handful of cattle, and they live, safely enough in spite of all that is going on, out in the boonies.   We’ll help them through this end of the dry season time, when having enough food is often a problem even for people with big farm fields.  If times were normal, this little family would have neighbors with other women & children and a better situation with food security. Please pray, pray, pray, for this country.

About danforth

As Covenant missionaries, we are working with all the tribal groups of the Central African Republic (CAR) but are trying to give special attention to the Fulani, a Musxlim, cattle herding, and semi-nomadic people group. We live on an experimental/training farm, near a mission station which has a hospital plus bible and nursing schools. We are establishing relationships with the local people groups through compassion ministries; Roy through agriculture and Aleta through public health and visitation, in order, ultimately, to share the good news of Jesus the Messiah with them. CAR is one of the least developed countries in the world and is currently in continual crisis (since the coup in March 2013), so reaching out in compassion is key to reaching their hearts. Due to the ongoing conflict and resultant ethnic cleansing in CAR, we are crossing the border to interact with our Fulani contacts.
